It is time for the change. It has been well over two years since I closed my retail bead and craft store. It has been over a year since I have moved house and locality. Now, it is time to bring my branding skills back into my business and give it a bit of a makeover. Choosing a name I thought was going to be hard. My old name wasn't sitting with my style or personality anymore. Time to think of something new.
I have a love for tangling (doodling, zentangle) and of course my bead making - so how could I incorporate the two, - I came up with Tanglebeads - ok it has both things in it. Easy to say, conveys the product. I liked it. Also checked that I could register it and it was all good. Hooray.
But now the story gets better - while I was looking for a cool font to use and saw that name about 100 times in 100 different fonts, it dawned on me that Tangle incorporated both my name and my partners name. Tan - for Tania and Gle for Glen - and while I was looking at the font I liked, I put the E backwards. When I showed Glen last night I told him that that was because he is not the type of person to run with the sheep he always does things his own way.
I am so happy with the name and style I hope you like it as well. It is more me, and I am really looking forward to the tangle part of the name and what will come out of that.
Today I will be tagging my exchange beads for the "You Pick 9" - Lampwork Etc exchange - here are a few of the ones that I am sending off. Not the best picture but I took it at work (shhhhh....) I attempted a Jellyfish bead and a tree decoration, neither of which I had done before, so in my eyes exchanges are a great way to expand your skills and also your colour pallet as I never use orange but heaps of the inspiration pictures had orange in them.
